. also renowned criminal defense attorney, mark geragos. you say jerry sandusky is opening the wound for the victims by releasing this statement. >> yes, anderson, i believe he is. what's happening is that sandusky is taking every opportunity to continue to torment these victims. he's now accusing them, in fact, made a direct reference to victim one by saying he started everything. there is no conspiracy here. there is no making these accusations for any reason other than to put mr. sandusky behind bars for the rest his life because of th heinous acts that he perpetrated on these victims. >> mark, what about this? he is alleging this basically huge conspiracy against him by just about everybody, putting out a statement like this the night before the sentencing hearing, is that something you would ever advise a client to do? >> no. the last thing you are going to want to do is advise a client i want you to go in there, you're better off just saying nothing. however, as a practical matter, he's going to get a life sentence, whether it's a number of years, whether it's consecutive, what
with deeds. our defense spending is deeply cut . we have no trade agenda to speak of and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership but of passivity. >> steve: here is pete is here. >> good morning. >> steve: mitt romney would like to be commander-in-chief. did he make a good case for himself . >> it was a fantastic speech and speech about leadership and carrying the mantel for freedom and still in a dark and difficult world and used libya for the larger struggle we face. he put it in the context of the larger foil we have faced. there are forces of radical islamism that seek our destruction and we stand up up to that. there will not be daylight for israel. and red line for iran. >> brian: he brought up the fact george marshall said the best thing to do to avoid war is to build up our defense and make us stronger. that's the best deterrent in war and proposed to build that rather than shrink the military. >> that is right. that is the difference between governor romney approach and the president. peace through strength. and the president said standing back is less provocat
into defense of the many ludicrous and inaccurate things he's said where biden has more experience and a very clear agenda staying boiled to the president. you know, there is a little bit of a wildcard. maybe not a huge one. but ryan is smart. but also very self-centered. so he could get really caught up. >> i wonder, is there an actual skill to being a vice president? we joke that the only thing touf do is stay alive, right? but in the sarah palin case, there was this sense that wait a minute, by putting her on the ticket, if she isn't adequate to be president, it makes me question john mccain's judgment. are they above the bar where there's no real quality difference? >> i think there's an open question about ryan. he can be glib and telegenic that comes across as competent where palin didn't have that skill. we can't say l about. j was the last time a vice president made -- palin in 2008 is a dramatic one. estimates that it was one, 1.5 points is what she cost john mccain for being on the ticket. which is huge. think back to dan quayle. i've never seen a more dramatic contrast between the
chavez for whatever his other faults is. that's the baggage he has. he's very defensive about it saying, look, i am not going to be making a sharp right-hand turn in this country. i'm a centrist. i will share the wealth and keep in the motion programs. mr. chavez's social programs that are so popular he. energetic guy. he's been up and down one side of this country and down the next house to house and the numbers that he's been accumulating at rallies really impressive numbers throughout the country, even right here in caracas which is normally hugo chavez stronghold. >> obvious question, when are we going to know? >> gosh, i wish i could tell you, don. what's going on right now, the polls were supposed to close a few minutes ago. they've not closed because there are people still in line. the electoral commission, we're waiting to see. after that, this is going to be hours and hours, and, don, we're talking midnight, 1:00, 2:00 in the morning highly likely. this is going to be a very, very late night in venezuela. >> thank you, paula. appreciate it. >>> jumping out of an aircraft seems
are proposing $5 trillion in tax cuts. you're proposing to increase defense spending by $2 trillion. >> neither of these numbers are accurate. >> biden himself acknowledges he will be ready to respond if ryan disputes his record. >> i just want to make sure that when i say these things, no, no, no, i don't have the position or that's not the governor's position. >> to fully prepare, biden had a strict daily ritual. afternoons where biden rehearsed answering moderator questions. dinner time at home with his wife and after dinner, biden returned to the hotel for the 90 minute mock debates took place. biden's team wants to make sure you don't see any of those gaffes he's so notorious for. >> there's nothing about joe biden that i think people in this state don't like about him and love about him. >> but it can be a hard line between speaking from the heart and moments like this one last week on the middle class. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. >> or in august, speaking to an audience that included many african-americans. >> he's goi
president to admit outloud that he he had no idea what was going on. ignorance is hardly a defense. the fact of the matter is there were over 230 security incidents there in libya. our consulate there in benghazi had been bombed twice. now, where else in the world are you aware of any consulate or embassy having been bombed twice? there were actually al qaeda flags flying above government buildings. when i went to libya last saturday. i was there most of the day, not a single person ever mentioned a video. this administration continues to have a lot of questions that go unanswered. in fact, compounded by the fact that the white house, the vice president, they continue -- they are just not being straight with the american people. they have a lot to answer for. >> congressman chaffets, of course, the statement released by chertoff and hayden is this. >> given what's been announced about the intelligence available before and after the september 11th attack. it is clear this the failure was not on the part of the intelligence community but on the part of the white house decision makers who shoul
to prepare their defense, to research all the victims' stories, to come up with evidence that might dispute those stories. it is a reed that they can hang on. they will certainly try to make the most of it on appeal, but i think the sheer power of these eight victims who testified, plus the evidence about the assaults to two other victims, is so overwhelming, it makes it a very steep hill for sandusky to climb and a long-shot at best. i think sandusky realized that, you could tell, he broke down, by the way, at the end of his statement, choked up. there were a number of times that both the victims, and even mcgettigan, the prosecutor, made much of the fact that during the trial sandusky would seem to smile and smirk at the testimony. and i have to say, even as during this hearing, when the victims began to talk, sandusky was impassive and seemed to have a half smile on his face, didn't react, even as these victims were talking about the damage that he had done to them. but when it came time for him to talk, and towards the end, as he rambled on, he seemed to break down, choke up and break d
on defense. explain yourself, justify yourself, move the spotlight off of barack obama's debate. >> completely distorts what he believes and who he is -- >> that would never happen. >> but my point was going to be, my point was going to be that the way for ryan to prevent that, he has to be on offense. he has to move, look, we tried trickle down government for $16 trillion worth of debt. how do we do it? do we fix anything? he has to keep the spotlight on obama. >> here's what joe biden is going to do? does it stand for the extremism of paul ryan and his budget or this new guy that showed up at the debate last week and he is going to say, who are these people? what do they stand for? actually, paul ryan is driving mitt romney, because, that's right, he is the target. paul ryan is driving mitt romney when it comes to the budget, when it comes to medicare. i mean, this is -- >> let me just add this. four years ago when biden came up here, he was facing sarah palin. now, the easy thing would have been to attack sarah palin. he does not do that. he steered clear of that and went str
come after a flurry of early defenses from the obama campaign. there was blaming the dishonesty. who were whoa talking to the other day? dick durbin, wasn't he saying he was so stunned by the president -- by mitt romney lying that he just couldn't get an answer out? >> yes. >> and then, of course, the whole pressure from the high altitude comments. i'm just throwing them -- i don't make them up. i just repeat them. columnist joel stein, his book qualified man made: a stupid quest for masculinity." let's talk about the v.p. debate. you'll be watching it, obviously. >> i am. i'll be at a book thing, which will have wine from this winery. it will be kind of a drinking game. hopefully there will be a tv where i can watch it. >> you are a drinking game expert. if there is such a thing. >> no. that's waet to keep these debates interesting. i will be drinking this stark raving wine. i'm jewish. i have jew stomach. the things i'll be asking require requires a lot of sips. every time joe biden mentions amtrak, every time he refers himself in third person. >> that's a good one. >> he calls him
the ryan plan, then he'll be more likely to be on defense. and i think he's got to defend the romney vision as opposed to defending the ryan plan. >> and bret, you just said he wants to keep this on economic issues. and social issues have once again that reared their head in this campaign, because of some answers, conflicting answers that mitt romney has given on abortion. listen to what he said a couple of days ago to the "des moines register". >> do you intend to pursue any legislations, specifically regarding abortion? >> i don't -- there's no legislation with regards to abortion that i'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda. >> and then he seemed to clean it up yesterday on the trail. listen to this. >> i think i said time and again, i'm a pro-life candidate. i'll be a pro-life president. the actions i'll take immediately are to remove funding for planned parenthood. will not be part of my budget. and also i've indicated i'll reverse the mexico city position of the president. i'll reinstate the mexico city policy, which prevents us using foreign aid for abortions overseas.
